Share this:

Cunard has revealed some of the new deck games that guests can play aboard its newest ship, with an exclusive partnership with PickleballENGLAND.

The luxury cruise line said in a statement it has celebrated deck games for more than a century.


Pickleball is a mixture of tennis, badminton and table tennis and can be played by singles or in pairs, either indoors or outside, and Queen Anne’s top deck will boast its very own state-of-the-art Pickleball court.

Cunard also said that Queen Anne will be the only ship in the world where travellers can master their archery skills with a real bow and arrow, as Cunard elevates its deck game offering with a new Archery GB partnership.

The partnership connects Cunard with world-leading athletes and Olympic coaches, with onboard instructors accredited by Archery GB.

The 3,000-guest ship will be an official Archery GB activity centre, where guests will be able to learn the basics with in-person coaching, compete with fellow travellers and enjoy a social introduction to the sport.

Sky Bar and Observation Deck

Queen Anne’s Sky Bar and Observation Deck is located on deck 14 and is a day-round venue and a multipurpose destination.

There is a putting green and fully stocked driving range, allowing travellers to practice their game surrounded by sea views or overlooking port landscapes.


The ever-popular deck quoits and shuffleboard courts will also be based in the Observation Deck and Sky Bar, offering travellers the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy some friendly competition.

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard, said: “Whether it’s pickleball, archery, or world-class shows and lectures, Cunard is committed to providing guests with a wealth of activities to choose from whatever mood or interest may take them.

“Our onboard entertainment has always been at the heart of what we do, and we look forward to Queen Anne continuing this trend in the future.”
